rebranding itself as fly wheel. fly wheel is a taxi hailing app based in redwood city. de soto is trying to compete with ride share companies like lyft, side car, and uber. speaking of uber, had trouble hailing one lately? maybe you are not uber nice. tonight, julie watts shows us the app's secret rating system and what it takes to get blacklisted. >> reporter: emily relies on a 3:00 a.m. cup of coffee to get her going and a ride by uber to get her to work by 4:00. but that ride became less reliable when they stopped picking her up. she thought there was something wrong with her app at first. >> 15 seconds to air. >> reporter: then, she soon discovered she couldn't get a ride because some uber drivers thought there was something wrong with her. >> i asked a driver what was going on and he basically told
me i had a really low uber rating. under three out of five. >> reporter: like many, she had no idea uber drivers rate riders and decide who to pick up based on that score. >> you know what your rating is? >> i have no idea. >> i don't know what that means. >> reporter: not surprising since riders can't see their score unless they ask an uber driver. uber says feedback is a two-way street meant to curb disrespectable, threatening, or unsafe behavior. but that feedback doesn't include any details. only a score. so riders like emily are left to guess why theirs is so low. >> she asked me if i had done something to an uber driver. maybe i had puked in an uber car which i absolutely have not. >> reporter: she suspects it is because she is not so perky on her 4:00 a.m. rides into work. busy catching up on overnight headlines and reading e-mails instead of chatting with her drivers. >> i can't believe i was
blacklisted. >> reporter: but riders have no way to dispute their scores so emily is determined to improve hers on her own. >> can you see what anyone has written about me? >> reporter: she is being uber friendly to every uber driver she meets and it seems to be working. >> all the drivers were really sympathetic. >> reporter: julie watts, kpix5. >> to find out your score, you can ask a driver, but they only see a number with no explanations. uber says it is exploring ways to show the riders their rating in the next generation of the app. or you can stand on the corner and hail a cab. say hey, want to make some money today? that works too. >> 4:00 a.m. is tough though. yeah. you want to make sure you get there as quickly as possible. >> you know what is tough? snow pack. or lack of. you hear a number, what is 22% of average? you don't live in the sierra if you are watching this broadcast. let's take the sierra to you.
this is what 22% of average snow pack looks like. that is yosemite. that is near homestead point. elizabeth was hiking there a couple of days ago. that is at 8100 feet of elevation. 8,000 feet up and there is zero snowfall. i have good news. the long range climate prediction center outlook paints a wetter an average picture for all of california including the sierra and the bay area. this is coming up more than a week from now. likely not starting until early march, but it is something. some bit of hope that we can get some snow in the sierra and some rainfall around here. tonight, there will be low clouds, fog. 48 degrees. oakland, 51. san jose, 49 degrees. why no rain from days one to seven, why are we looking eight to 14 days? we have two ridges of high pressure. the one to the south has been dominant. a lot of cloud cover. we got the afternoon sunshine. it has felt like june for a second morning in a row. we say good-bye to that ridge.
it is all about that ridge to the north that will give us a north toe northwest wind that is drier and for thus, that means more sunshine that will be milder. on sunday, we have been talking about a storm missing us to the east. i'm here to report, it will still miss us, but it will drag down cooler canadian air and the temperatures will go from the 60s and 70s with sunshine down to the 50s and the 60s with sunshine. the first time, pretty much all winter long, it will feel like winter with overnight lows in the 30s . afternoon highs in the 50s and the 60s . that does not start until sunday. low clouds back tonight. it will be a little warmer tomorrow. watch out for the king tides. one final morning with higher than normal tides tomorrow. san jose tomorrow. lots of sunshine, 70 degrees. morning cloud covers. los altos, 69. mid 60s in san ramon, 65 mill valley 68. lots of sunshine for
